CHICAGO (May 15, 2019) — 1871 announced today a new partnership with Teravision Technologies, a leading nearshore software outsourcing company that supports technology stakeholders in their mission to build software products that solve big problems and drive revenue. The partnership will provide 1871’s community of digital founders and entrepreneurs with the development support they need to build, sustain, and improve their offerings along with essential resources to dissect, analyze, and prioritize their digital roadmap.
“We’re delighted to partner with Teravision and equip our members with an entire suite of digital resources and assets,” said 1871 CEO Betsy Ziegler. “We’re always looking for new ways to provide our founder community with unfair advantages at scale. This partnership helps us deliver that opportunity by giving our members the ability to build first-class digital products regardless of their technical expertise.”
Teravision’s team will meet with individual founders and partners to better understand their vision and determine the ideal way to manage their technology practices, tech stack, team structure, and product road map. Participants will also learn more about product management, prioritization, Agile methodology, and assembling and leading development teams.
“We are extremely excited to exchange interesting ideas with so many brilliant minds,” said Ricardo Arcia, CEO at Teravision. “As a company we live and breathe tech startups, and hearing entrepreneurs’ pitches on how they plan to solve the world’s problems never gets old for us. Being able to help them reach their goals and see them succeed is what really keeps us going.”
Participants in the program will be those who make use of the following technologies in their business:
- Mobile applications – iOS and/or Android apps, either native or hybrid
- Web applications – Responsive enterprise or consumer-facing websites, landing pages, eCommerce, online portals, networks and marketplaces.
- APIs/Integrations – Connecting existing applications with third party services such as social networks (Facebook, Instagram YouTube etc.), accounting systems, office applications, payment and credit card processing tools, and more.
- UX/UI Design – The look and feel of a website, desktop or mobile app to reflect a company’s branding and attract its target users
- QA Testing – Quality assurance of existing software system and the elimination of bugs, undesirable functions, etc.
1871 startups that utilize any of the aforementioned technologies can benefit from the partnership as it addresses common challenges by non-technical or less technical founders. Additionally, the partnership will benefit technology stakeholders that lack the bandwidth to launch their software initiatives on time and on budget.
Teravision is a team of nearly 200 software engineers and architects, product owners, project managers, designers and QA analysts focused on one thing: working alongside motivated technology stakeholders to build software products that solve big problems and drive revenue.
